When we have the need to justify
The little things that we do wrong;
We develop a callous around our heart
And sear our conscience along.
We believe that we are justified
When we confess to others our sins,
But we’re neglecting the source of forgiveness
And the true peace that only Christ brings.
We enter through the rear door
As we place our trust in man,
And do not acknowledge the Saviour direct
As we believe man best understands.
There needs to be a change of heart
As we repent of our deception;
For not honouring Jesus as Lord and Savior
As in our prayers He is hardly mentioned.
As we pick up our cross daily
And exchange our will for the Lord’s;
He will cleanse us from unrighteousness
As we inherit the promises stored.
God is waiting patiently
As a U-turn is made in our hearts;
So He’ll bless us with pure peace and love
So we can truly be set apart.
“Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world…” Acts 17:30-31
“None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give a ransom for him – For the redemption of their souls is costly..” Psalm 49:7-8
